WHAT IS A CAVITY?
Have a dental emergency? Call today!
A cavity is when bacteria gets inside your tooth and starts rotting and eating it away. It is actually an infection in your tooth, and we know this infection can spread toxins into your body. Cavities can cause systemic issues if that decay & infection is getting into your body. Your complete health is important to us, which is why we’re not all about “drilling and filling” and just managing your cavities.
We look at all of your risks and work to get you fully healthy. Some questions we’ll ask are: Why do you get cavities? What is the pH of your mouth? What is your genetic background? What does your nutrition and dietary intake look like? Therefore, knowing the answers to these questions will help us address the underlying causes of cavities so you can get back to complete health.
Make sure you are coming in regularly for cleanings and exams to ensure you stay cavity-free!
